R.I.P. Azzedine Alaïa, one of the last true master couturiers. He was a familiar sight during Paris couture week, when he walked into shows without any fanfare, almost always with his dear friend Carla Sozzani. One interesting thing to note about this photo – these were their outfits of choice for July. Mid-summer or not, black was always the order of the day.
A cool day-to-night look on David Thielebeule, who’s just as comfortable hopping from city to city for fashion weeks as he is chilling out in the country. As I know, because after seeing him in New York, Milan and Paris, I ran into him in a Westchester apple orchard! Great minds think alike? He’s always well dressed, no matter what the occasion. I like that this look is just the tiniest bit disco and therefore very on trend.
The midi skirt paired with a button-down shirt is shaping up to be a key daytime look for spring/summer 2017. This polished but pretty Valentino skirt was spotted on a couple of guests at the resort show in NYC.
There’s something particularly inspiring about punk-inspired looks right now. Caroline Daur wore a choker studded with beads that look like pins and a pink Carven top to the Carven show in Paris.
This lady with pink hair was by far one of the most stylish people to walk out of the Valentino show this fall – much more well dressed and fabulous than many of the young models. So yes, as the New York Times said this weekend, don’t dress your age. If you’re going to dye the gray away, why not dye your hair hot pink?
This trend’s got legs: pajama dressing has been around for a couple seasons now, but this fall the looks are more sophisticated, like this navy silk pajama set on Chiara Ferragni. We noticed many women dressing for evening shows and dinners in silk pajamas. The style has particular appeal because it’s so comfortable, which is the way women really want to dress now.
Modelpalooza! Devon Windsor, Rachel Hilbert and Anouk van Kleef layered dresses and vests over shorts and bikinis at Coachella day 0ne. Also note the round sunglasses on all three of them. If you buy nothing else this summer, get yourself a pair of these for an instant update.
At the Maison Martin Margiela show, Gilda Ambrosio wore two trends we’ve been seeing a lot of: velvet and choker necklaces. And the two things go together so well, in a Stevie Nicks kind of way.
Winner for coolest outfit of the day on Saturday: Sarah Rutson riffing on the pajama-dressing trend by wearing actual silk pajamas to the Bottega Veneta show. The velvet platform heels and necklaces dress it up.
It may be too hot to throw on a suede jacket, but it’s never too soon to bust out the latest accessories. Jen Mankins of the highly influential Brooklyn boutique Bird ushered in the fall last September with a blue Mansur Gavriel bucket bag and sculptural necklace.
J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons mixed a white tee with a cream colored blazer, cream colored jeans and gold jewelry for a relaxed but sophisticated look on a hot day at Prabal Gurung’s show.
Annie Georgia Greenberg kept cool on a super hot day last September in a flowing silk plaid dress that caught the breeze outside the Prabal Gurung show.
I am loving the chic take on utilitarian, garage-style jumpsuits on the streets now. Anya Ziourova wore a blue one by Rosie Assoulin to the Chanel couture show in Paris.
French fashion friends Laure Heriard Dubreuil and Alexandra Golovanoff met up in NYC for the Gucci resort show, both in two cool looks that showcase the new wide cut of pants and jeans right now.
Sigh – I must admit I am jealous of everyone just heading out to Coachella right now for weekend two. Still dreaming about weekend one! Model Gigi Hadid wore – what else? – Guess to day three of Coachella 2015.
